A winter storm working its way from the east likely will bring 3 to 6 inches of snow to Santa Fe early Thursday.

With temperatures hovering in the high 20s for most of the day, "in Santa Fe proper, the Plaza area, it looks like it will be cold enough for it to stick to the ground," said Andrew Church, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Albuquerque.

Church said the surrounding mountains, including Ski Santa Fe, could receive up to 14 inches of snow. The storm may linger into Friday morning with snow showers and high winds but should "taper off around dusk Friday," Church said.
